Egberto “Tito” Colon Sr. — the father of Capt. Jaime Colon and Officer Egberto Colon Jr. — was found by Ocean Township police in Waretown, Elizabeth Police Lt. Daniel Saulnier said this afternoon.
A concerned citizen, who had seen the “Silver Alert” issued for Colon told police they’d seen a green 1994 Saturn SL matching his on the side of the road on Route 9, Saulnier said.
He “appears to be in very good condition,” the lieutenant said just after 4 o’clock this afternoon. “His family is en route to get him.”
Kim Vantassel of Barnegat saw the Silver Alert earlier in the day on the Garden State Parkway and spotted the car parked on the side of the highway near a Shop Rite in Waretown, Saulnier said.
“The Elizabeth Police Department and the Colon family would like to thank all the [l]aw [e]nforcement and media outlets who assisted in locating Mr Colon, especially the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit,” Saulnier said.
Colon was last seen driving to the McDonalds on Filmore Street and Route 1/9 at 11 o’clock yesterday morning. Authorities said he suffers from epilepsy and diabetes, they said.
I will continue to wait for explaintation to why this monster was so near my home. He is abuser like his son, has beaten his own wife for years like a animal. Apple doesnt fall far from the tree from this family.
